Adding lift assists for my trailer's rear gate

    My Diamond C trailer has 2" (I think) tubes for the top of the rails. I want to put garage door spring inside the tubes for my lift assists. Here is the problem. I need some sort of end cap for the tube that has rollers incorporated into it for the cable to ride on as it comes in and out of the tube when the gate is going up or down. Does anyone know of such a thing or a place that could make them. They would have to be realitively strong to take a shot if a spring failed.

    I have added assists to other trailers but not like this.

    Thanks
